Horn Book Guide Online (Children's Book Reviews)

The Horn Book Guide Online, updated each spring and fall, publishes short, critical reviews of virtually every hardcover trade book published in the United States for young people. The reviews are clear and succinct (about 60 to 75 words), identifying strengths and weaknesses and rating the books on a scale from one (high) to six. The database is searchable by author, illustrator, title, subject, and bibliographic data, as well as by rating. Currently, there are more than 51,000 full text reviews from 1989 through the current issue.
